HP Laptop Wireless Adapter will not enable anymore Pressing button does nothing.

Product Name: G60-530 USNotebook
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My Wireless just quit working.  The button is orange and I can't press the button to make it blue(turn it on).


It's as if the wireless adapter just quit.  I found a search back in 2009 that it was a known issue but that was other laptops.


That issue made reference to BIOS.  Mine is:

BIOS Version/Date           Hewlett-Packard F.52, 8/26/2009


Any other things I can test/check?

System Driver Support Page:

The wireless button only works to engage Wireless when there is a functional Wireless network setup in place.


From the How-to Section:

 Setting Up a New Connection to a Wireless Local Area Network (Windows 7)

 Creating a Wireless Home Network (Windows 7)


You may need to reinstall your Wireless Driver:


Control Panel > icon view > Device Manager > Open network to find which type of Wireless driver is needed for your system.


From the Troubleshooting Section for your notebook:
